My name is Nicole C. Schroeder, but the name I am called the most is mom. My husband and I have three daughters, and we feel honored to be their parents. I am an educator in the public school system. Teaching is one of my greatest joys! I published a book entitled, In the Midst of a Storm in March of 2009; however, that was during a time in my life when I did not realize that I should consult the One who gave me the gift in the first place. (I mixed what I wanted with what He wanted for me, and it ultimately did not work out very well). Imagine that, right?
As far as my new found writing career is concerned, I do not consider myself to be a playwright or an author for that matter. I am a child of God, who was called by Him to write a play about racial injustices that occur in our school systems in 2017. (Yes! I had to overcome a lot of insecurities before getting to this point.) I give all honor and glory to Him! My prayer is for everyone, who feels led to read or attend this play someday, to mediate on Psalm 51:10. King David wrote these words to God: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Through this process, I’ve learned that the work starts with me. I cannot help my present or future brothers and sisters in Christ if I do not allow God to search my heart daily. I no longer strive to be politically correct because “Kingdom correctness” is what I desire because it aligns me with my Father in Heaven. I am a work in progress but the journey is worth it!
